Setting how drawings are opened

If you regularly open drawings that contain errors or damaged data, for example, if you are a new progeCAD user and your original drawings were created using different CAD software, you can enable Open Drawings using Recover. This option automatically checks all drawings for errors when using the Open command, and attempts recovery, as needed. Viewing warning messages when opening drawings allows you to know which files are being fixed by progeCAD and what errors have occurred; however, you can also choose to hide the warnings.

To set how drawings are opened

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose Tools > Options.
    • Type config and then press Enter.
  2. Click the General tab.
  3. Mark Open Drawings using Recover to use the Recover command automatically each time you use the Open command.
  4. Mark Hide Warnings when Opening Drawings using Recover to hide warnings if errors are found in a drawing while opening it. Errors will still be logged in an ASCII file with an .adt extension.
  5. Click OK.
